About Tac Safe

Tactics and Safety Consultants

We are a group of dedicated professional trainers from the Law Enforcement and Civilian communities. We recognize that responsible, armed citizens and a well-informed community are the best deterrents against crime and violence.

Our goal is to provide training and situational awareness to individuals, families, and organizations to better equip people to defend themselves and what they hold dear. Safety requires much more than carrying a gun.

Training is a lifestyle.
